"Not a pristine SBD . But I wouldn't want one"

Really?

Why not?

Not to take anything from Ken and Judy, but recorded from the balcony on archaic equipment, it's not a particularly good audience recording, even for the era.

I would consider giving one of my kidneys for a top quality soundboard of this performance...

A bit of posterity. The acoustic set is a piece of history to be enjoyed in its purest form.

A pristine soundboard source would be pure enough for me!

I too had lousy sounding cassettes of these shows, and I embrace the technological improvements. I find it rather interesting that an audience recording of this performance is in the Grateful Dead vault (and the potential ramifications of that), Lemieux sharing part of it with us at his Taper's Section...

A kidney? Goodness
I seem to recall you've offered a kidney before in a similar context. It's probably a good thing you don't have many to spare.
Didn't I read somewhere that Bob Weir's biological father was born with an extra kidney? Maybe he would donate it so you could have a soundboard of this show.

No, it was a testicle that I offered. For a vault remastered boxed set of the three night January '69 Avalon run...

A pristine soundboard of 11/8/70 would be well worth a kidney, though! The historic show is, in my opinion, among the very best performances in the history of the Grateful Dead. But both the Lee and Weinberg recordings of this show are adequate at best...

Clearly, it's best then that some of these items are not available, or you'd soon be dismembered.
(oh dear, a very bad pun ...)
